  1. I haven't heard anything except the stock answers that Jimmy's been giving for years and years now (Paraphrasing.."Warming up for next year", "Got material ready, just have to get it done" ect.). No news yet and in this case no news is probably NOT good news as far as a new album/tour goes. :[
  2. I would guess its unreleased live material of some sort since its been stated that pretty much everything recorded in the studio has been re-mastered and released already. Look forward to finding out either way!
  3. I assume its not a re-master of anything since he said 'Mastering' Led Zeppelin. Not really sure what it could be honestly.
  4. I will say that Jimmy still looks good and has pep in his step. Pretty cool.
  5. Okay Bones of Saints gives me a little bit more hope for this album. I like the intro, its got a Zeppelin vibe to my ears. And while I wouldn't say the main riff is searing or anything, its catchy enough. Again Plants vocals lifts the song up a notch or two from being just "okay" imo. Also the song doesn't over stay its welcome. Look forward to hearing the rest. fingers crossed!
  6. I'll give the rest of the album a listen but if this is any sign of what's to come this will be the second RP albums that I give a listen to and then shelve. Its like what a commenter stated above, this music goes no where. Ambience over substance, nothing sticks to my ears. Hope I'm proven wrong though. Also I wonder if the title of this song is a reference to the May Queen in Stairway to Heaven?
  7. I recommend that you do what I do, CLICK. Then find the original and enjoy. I don't have time to listen to him butcher classics like that.
  8. You raise really great points here imo, and I pretty much agree with all of them. I remember when I first heard that Jimmy and David where teaming up. I was both excited and hesitant at the same time because I'd watched Jimmy unite with an exceptional front man in Paul Rogers, yet to my ears The Firm albums where mediocre compared to I expected from such a musically talented pairing. But when the day came and the local rock station dropped Pride and Joy it just blew my mind. The riff was slamming, vintage Page, yet it sounded fresh to my ears. I was like "Damn that rocks!! It was really exciting to be a Zeppelin fan again because we finally had new GOOD Zeppelin-like music, and from Jimmy Page himself. And it seemed like it was about damn time too. Pride and Joy quickly became the most requested song, day after day, week after week. People kept calling into the station asking to hear Jimmy's new music. I couldn't help but feel good for him because up till that time it kind of felt like he'd become a little irrelevant in the 'modern' musical landscape, even being viewed by some as an old washed up rocker whos better days where far behind. But despite the fact that the album did indeed sell really well and generated a lot of excitement at the time, in general I still think its a woefully underrated piece of work. It has Jimmy's best studio guitar playing/recording since Zeppelin. And the great thing is overall it still holds up fantastic even decades later. I agree with you, I hope that this album gets more attention from the fans and music critics than it has in the past and people really judge it on its merits and context without the tired clichés and pre-conceived judgements .
  9. Agreed, Zooma is a tour de force. It show cases JPJ's criminally underrated musicianship in spades. What I meant by Coverdale/Page being the "best over all" solo album by any of the guys is its AOR nature in comparison to Zeppelin's albums and not necessarily its musicianship (which was pretty stellar in itself imo).
  10. Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, if so it can be deleted. Robert and his good buddy, AC/DC's Brian Johnson joined Paul Rogers on stage for a jam session during a "FREE SPIRIT UK TOUR" gig at Oxford last Sunday. Robert sounds solid as usual and nailed the Harmonica imo. The song they performed is the classic (Money: That's all I want).
  11. Robert proposed a musical reunion with Jimmy around 2012/2013, but Jimmy rejected it for some reason (I suspect it had to do with the creative parameters that Robert set for the style of music he wanted to make with him). . And Robert didn't seem to happy about the rejection saying that "He (Jimmy) just walked away". So as far as I can tell there is at least some level of interest on Roberts part to create/play music with Jimmy again. But so far there seems to be a hard disagreement on how to do it on both their parts. Odds haven't looked good so far for it happening at all. But as a fan I have fingers crossed despite the unlikely hood of anything coming out of it.
  12. One way Robert can get ahead of this rumor if its not true is to release a quick statement along the lines of "nothing to do with Zeppelin" and leave it like that. Then no one can legitimately complain about it. This has been gaining traction for about a week now, he can shut it down pretty fast if he wants.
  13. I'll never say never when it comes to Page playing again, but I think theres a better chance of getting new studio material out of him rather than a big WW tour. Several sources close to Jimmy including Robert Plant have said that Jimmy has a large portion of unproduced music he's been working on for years (wont do any good if he doesn't record it though). But he still looks great and pretty healthy so who knows about playing live. I'll believe it when I see it.
